Read on for a few more of our favourites.

STAY: The Colony Palm Hotel

A hidden gem, this Spanish hacienda-style boutique hotel with a vintage feel. Poolside plants seclude the French Riviera-chic cabanas at the serene pool and the Purple Palm Restaurant and Bar has a great scene with a Morocco meets old Hollywood feel. Truly a desert oasis!


BRONZE: Spraytanica

If you are coming from Canada, like us, your gonna want some fresh color when you get there! We love Nicole at Spraytanica. She has a room at a Shear Insanity Salon in Catherdral City perfectly situated half way between Palm Springs and Indio. Or better yet she’s mobile and can come to you! Her products are all natural, parabin free, and not tested on animals. The color is customized, last 5 – 7 days and fades evenly. Call Nicole at 310.228.8624 and get your glow on!



El Paseo shop eat drink palm springs coachella

The famous El Paseo Shopping District is the Rodeo Drive of the desert. Featuring a mile of over 300 shops, art galleries, jewelry stores and restaurants lined with beautiful manicured flower beds. Our perfect day here would be to grab brunch at Wilma & Frieda in the Gardens and then stroll the stripes locally owned boutiques like Elizabeth & Prince and Blonde Boutique, a patio cocktail at Tommy Bahamas, followed by a peek into some of the fabulous art galleries. A blow out at one of the many salons and then dinner + drinks at Mastros. 


RELAX: The Well Spa at Miramonte Resort

The desert waters derived from a natural well hundreds of years ago, continue to revitalize today at this award-winning spa. It’s intimate Tuscan environment features 13 treatment rooms and a co-ed courtyard with private salt water pool. Check out the spa parties as well!
